Spotted! Cover of The Elite by Kiera Cass8:00 AM
Kiera Cass revealed the book cover for The Elite, the second novel in The Selection trilogy, on her blog yesterday!
Release Date: April 23, 2012
Summary (from Goodreads):
The hotly-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Selection.
Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.
America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.
Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.
Did you just gasp in delight when your eyes feasted on the gorgeous cover for The Elite? I seriously can't stop looking at it! I thought the blue colour for The Selection was already so pretty, but the cover art designers at HarperTeen have really outdone themselves this time. The red-orange colour really stands out, and I think it fits perfectly with the glamorous lifestyle America is now living at the palace.
What are your thoughts on the cover? Are you excited to read The Elite? I'll admit, I didn't fall completely in love with The Selection (here's my review), but it was enjoyable enough that I'm truly curious to know what happens next. It's a great novel if you're looking for a light dystopian read with romance!
